I am currently an undergraduate student at Yeshiva University, taking Physics II. I was home in St. Louis for a brief period of time when I had the privileged of being tutored by Mr. Zhang. Mr. Zhang is an absolutely brilliant man and a brilliant tutor. I often found myself to be just as knowledgeable as other physics tutors that I have encountered and I often pick up on their mistakes. Furthermore, many other physics tutors take at least half the time figuring out themselves how to do the problem and are just interested in your money. I can honestly attest that Mr. Zhang was like no other tutor I have ever encountered. Firstly, he was extremely sharp and after reading a problem immediately knew how to tackle it. Rather than spending many minutes thinking about how to work the problem Mr. Zhang knew how to approach the question. Furthermore, Mr. Zhang hardly had to look up the equations to use. He had the vast majority memorized, and those that he did not have memorized he simply derived very quickly on the side of the page. Unlike many other tutors Mr. Zhang was not scared of the solution manual. After explaining a problem he would insist on comparing the answer that we obtained to the answer given. It is clearly evident from Mr. Zhang attitude and dealings that he derives pleasure from his students finding his sessions valuable and learning the material and not from taking their money. He genuinely cares and wants to help is students, and this is saying a tremendous amount. Despite Mr. Zhang's truly brilliant intellect (I do not say this lightly, he is a true genius), he is able to simplify concepts and explain his though process in a clear manner that an individual of average intelligence can understand. He furthermore is extremely patient and happy to explain things numerous times. Mr. Zhang is also extremely reliable and returns email with in a few hours. He is also available on his cell phone, and almost always picks up. Overall Mr. Zhang could do anything with his life. It is truly a rare gift to be brilliant enough to understand extremely complicated material, yet also be able to simplify it enough for a person of average intelligence to understand. Thank you Mr. Zhang for all of your help!
My son needed a lot of help with both the SAT and the ACT. Arbor Tutors really came through. Perfect 36 on the math section of the ACT.
Jason is an excellent teacher and is knowledgeable across all subjects. He was able to immediately improve my son's test scores by giving him quick techniques and simple guides to answering test questions. He improved my son's ACT score enough to get him accepted into an Ivy school.
We are so happy with the wonderful tutors and service. We would highly recommend this company! It has made a significant impact on my sons success.
James is a great tutor! He really was able to help me with almost anything. If he doesn't know some material that you need help with, he will research and study the material to be able to help you! He is a very smart and patient person. James really helps you understand concepts that may be hard to understand because he is an easy person to understand. Highly recommend having James as your tutor!
I make math understandable for everyone. Please tell all of your friends about how easy I make math.
Over the course of my experience I have worked with children with learning challenges, improved students’ skill and confidence in Math, taught high school students test strategies and reviewed content to prepare them for the ACT, taught a summer course in Latin reading enrichment, and am currently teaching a summer Algebra prep course. I tutored for 2 1/2 years with Tutor Doctor and then independently for 1 1/2+ years after the franchise dissolved. I have raised students ACT scores from 1-3 points overall, and up to 5 points on individual sections. I have improved students' grades in geometry and algebra, and increased a student's confidence and scores in 7th grade math. (When I started tutoring her she had melt-downs at almost every session. Now she has been getting B's and approaching her homework with a more positive attitude.) I also helped a student improve his study habits for Biology and raise his grade from failing to a B. I have also worked with an ADHD student to help him keep up in a college prep high school setting. As well as tutoring high school subjects, I also teach piano performance.
I am available for tutoring primarily in biology and possibly anthropology, as well as other sciences, social sciences, french, writing, and most younger level subjects are also a possibility. I am also available for public health and biology up to the graduate level. Please contact me directly to speak further.
I am a certified elementary teacher where I have taught first, second, and third grade. I have tutored many students in and outside of my school district. I have also earned many professional development and attended conferences to enhance my teaching knowledge.
My tutor was very flexible with his schedule. It was very easy for us to set up a time and date for the tutoring sessions. He was prepared for the sections I told him I needed help with and was great at explaining concepts I disn't understand from my own professor!
Students that work with me are very confident in their ability after a few sessions. I take my time to explain the material on an individual basis, instead of instantly turning to the textbook's methods.
